Whether you fancy taking a gentle stroll down the river or a lung-busting climb to the top of the peaks, Wild Mountain Country near Barkly East and Rhodes has something to offer everybody.

This area of the Southern Drakensberg is a true mountain wilderness, with summits reaching over 2,500 metres. You can climb the peaks to have an eye to eye encounter with the eagles that soar the skies.

If the hike up the slopes doesn’t take your breath away, then the views at the top will. Gaze down on gorges, valleys, streams, buck and wild flowers, revel in the freedom and enjoy the silence. Quench your thirst from the crystal clear streams and fill your lungs with the purest air imaginable.

Those seeking a less strenuous excursion will love our gentle riverside walks, complete with natural swimming pools, Jacuzzis and bushman paintings.

A typical hike will include:
• Riverside walk, swim, caves, gorges and rock formations
• Bird and wildlife sightings
• Stunning views
• Bushman rock art sites
• Picnics and packed lunches can be provided on request

We offer guided hikes ranging from a couple of hours to several days (transportation of luggage can be arranged between farm guest houses). For those who really want to get back to nature, we can arrange for you to camp in a huge riverside cave and sleep like a bushman for the night.

We can also arrange for your hiking trip to be combined with other activities to form a multi-day adventure trail. Options include mountain biking, horse riding, fly-fishing, snow skiing, river rafting and tubing.
